Great Odin's Ravens--THOR IS HERE!

The thunderous Thor rolls into theaters this weekend and we have him at the Library of Justice! Just added today are a few rollicking tales of the mighty Asgardian's adventures.

Thor and the Mighty Avengers is an excellent compilation of his team-ups on Earth with Iron Man, Namor, Ant-Man/Giant-Man, and Captain America! Writer Roger Landgridge and artist Chris Samnee turn in one of the most charming renditions of the character in ages. He's brash, brooding and full of heart. One of my personal favorites--pure fun!

Thor Crown of Fools is a single issue comic that begins a brand new adventure on Asgard battling the nefarious God of Mischief, himself: Loki. Thor finds himself at battling friends (the Lady Sif and the Warriors Three: Fandral, Hogan, and Volstagg) who've fallen under Loki's spell and seeking the help of an unlikely ally--a Frost Giant!

Want some background on Lord Malekith the Dark Elf, the villain from the new movie? Then check out his run-in with the God of Thunder in The Mighty Thor, Across All Worlds, where a plot to take over Asgard turns into a full-out war with the gods.

THOR (that's the whole title!) by famed sci-fi writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Olivier Coipel is a trade paperback collection of the regular series where the war-weary Asgardian returns from the dead to team up with his Earthly alter ego, Dr. Donald Blake. It's a wonderful homage to the original Thor stories from the 60s.

Come by soon before Loki makes off with 'em!

Be sure to stop by soon before we're overtaken by ghastly ghouls!

Love and Marriage

Early October is a special time for the Librarian of Justice and is the time of year when we celebrate our wedding anniversary. We remember that beautiful fall day...surrounded by family and friends...happily proclaiming our love for and commitment to one another. All very sappy and romantic and ridiculous...and we love it! :)

So to celebrate our special day, the library is now stocked with books focused on relationships, love and marriage. Relationships between witches and vampires...relationships that had to be hidden because of the time and context in which they existed..."relationships" that were arranged and undesired...relationships that were steamy and fleeting...interracial relationships...fairy tale relationships. We've got it all! Right here in our Little Free Library.

So stop by, pick out a book, and enjoy marveling at shapes and sizes in which relationships exist.

Happy reading, Readers!

Be sure to stop by and check 'em out!

Thank you to our generous book donors!

We've been very fortunate over the last few months to receive a fresh supply of books from neighbors, friends, and even other little free libraries!

Hopefully we've thanked you all in person (or with a personal message) but we wanted to express what your generosity has meant to us in fulfilling our mission of promoting literacy, enjoying good reads with one another, and bringing our neighborhood together. Here's a selection of some of the most recent donations:
Great graphic novels! 

Ground-breaking Science!

A whole slew of William Gibson cyberpunk!

Space Gets Wild with Rocket Raccoon!

Landing at the library today to help celebrate SCI-tember: classic adventures of the furriest, swashbuckler in the cosmos--Rocket Raccoon! If you've not heard of him, you will soon--he's the best-known member of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (think: Avengers in space!). A new movie in the works, due to hit theaters next year, will feature Bradley Cooper's voice in the role. Keep an eye on RR--you'll be seeing him everywhere come next summer!

Double-sized Rocket Raccoon issue with Guardians of the Galaxy preview issue!
This classic Rocket story is included in the special issue!
Now's your chance to get caught up on the classic escapades from his title in the 80s that made him famous! We've even added an additional preview comic for the latest Guardians of the Galaxy series, as a primer for his new adventures as a member of that team. 

Rocket was created by  Bill Mantlo and Keith Giffen. Mantlo wrote the character as a quick-witted, raygun-slinging hero that was quick with one-liners, but he also intended for the title to have a more meaningful message

The Rocket Raccoon special issue has several stories and is appropriate for all ages. Guardians will likely appeal to older audiences (we've marked it "T" for teen, but your mileage may vary).

Be sure to stop by and check them out!

New science books in stock!

It's gonna be a HOT one today--so pick up a new book from the library today and hunker down in some air conditioning! We've added new books covering a range of topics in science. From kids books on dinosaurs, animals, and--of course!--meteorology, to some cerebral titles exploring the cosmos and the human genome.

In the Library of Justice:

Kids -
  • Dinosaur Combat - exciting early-reader, slim book with great illustrations
  • Prairie Animals - learn about creatures great and small from our region
  • Penguins - National Geographic reader on everyone's favorite arctic bird
  • Amazing Weather: Facts and Trivia - fun coil-bound flip book on weather phenomenon

Switch on your lightsaber, power-up your electron microscope, and prime those thrusters--it's SCI-tember! We're celebrating science AND science fiction throughout the month of September. That means lots of fresh books and comics celebrating the wonders of nature and imagination from all corners of the universe!

This morning we stocked several new additions including books by sci-fi greats, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, and Margaret Atwood. Not to mention, the first "sequel" Star Wars book by Timothy Zahn that featured characters and events following the storyline in Return of the Jedi. We've even got the only sci-fi novel ever written by astronomer Carl Sagan! (Hint: it was later made it into a movie.) We also snagged a copy of Daniel H. Wilson's Robopocalypse, about an android takeover--which is in developement to become a film directed by Steven Spielberg!
When you stop by this month, you'll also see some great comic books and graphic novels, including some non-fiction science comics (I bet you didn't know those existed!). We'll also have some great selections on the natural world for kids--just in time for back to school!

Look for more selections from science fiction greats this week and throughout the month!

Happy "Read Comics in Public Day", a.k.a. Jack Kirby Day!

This post comes at the end of a long day where I had totally intended to post earlier (hey, I got busy!), but since we're coming up on a long holiday weekend--you can still get out there and participate in Read Comics in Public Day!  

Today is important. It's meant to help recapture our excitement for powerful visual storytelling as much as it it's aimed at helping to de-mystify and de-stigmatize an artform some may consider "juvenile" or time you could have spent reading a "real" book.

So what makes comics so special anyway? 

Paleolithic paintings from Bhimbetka caves in India
Comics are an essential part of our modern, visual language. More than just superheroes with boxes drawn around them--they're the building blocks of storytelling with the camera lens of the mind's eye. They're motion and emotion and language broken down into the most significant beats of a story--its DNA.

The true strength of comics (sometimes called sequential storytelling) is the ability to reshape those individual nuggets of character, setting, and pacing into a whole, cohesive-and-yet-captivating tale. One that can be examined by the reader--backwards, forwards, and holding still--over each frame in time--as no other art form can. They're not just pictures with word bubbles, but actually pictures as words (the best of them are, anyway).

Comics are rooted in illustration, our oldest, visual fine art. Drawing, paintings, etchings, scrawls from primitive tools or by hand helped our ancestors express experiences in a way that could be shared immediately and--at least to them--as a way to carry messages through time. From cave paintings, to illuminated manuscripts, to political cartoons and pulp stories--we've been reading comic books in one form or another for as long as we could spread paint on rock.

Wonder Woman issue #1
Why do we need to read them in public?
Comics earned their inheritance from the pulp novels of early 20th century. The most successful pulps enticed readers with stories of mystery, romance, and high adventure. Most of them weren't aimed at kids--though many children and young adults took to them.

Comics came along as a cheaper, slimmer, quicker way to tell a story--enthrall readers, and get them coming back for more. By the 1930s magazine publishers were becoming comic book publishers, and during this time  some of our most iconic pop culture characters emerged: Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman. By the early forties: Captain America.

When the U.S. entered World War II, comics went with soldiers overseas to help them escape the horrors they'd faced on the battlefield, and as a reminder of simple pleasures back at home. When the war ended, American GI's brought their love of comics home, now hooked on the characters they'd come to love.

Shaming an Industry
But to keep growing audiences, comics grew up, and soon followed the pattern of the more adult stories the pulps had established years earlier. After the war, veterans returned home to start families. Rock and roll emerged. Teenagers rebelled and the strict confines of 1950s society couldn't hold back the coming societal changes. The term "juvenile delinquency" became a part of the national lexicon as parents hoped to restrain the newfound rebelliousness of the newest generation--the Baby Boomers.

Politics became embroiled in the teenage vs. parent conflict found in many American households--but a straw man was needed--something that could be fought against and held up as a scapegoat for parental fears--and comics were the perfect target. In 1954, psychiatrist Fredric Wertham published Seduction of the Innocent, a damning report about how American youth were falling victim to the corruptible influence of comic book violence and sexual overtones. It was a witch hunt (not uncommon in the 50s). Comic publishers and creators were summoned to Washington to atone for their sins during a Congressional investigation. Comics were ruining everything and an entire industry was made to pay a steep price--censorship. 

Publishers, seeing no other alternative, worked together to create a self-imposed standard called the Comics Code Authority, that would serve as a literal stamp of moral approval. But the damage was done--for decades to follow comic books would have to settle for being second-rate, low-brow lit. (Note: it was proven once and for all last year that Wertham falsified his research and testimony.)

A Hero for Comics
Jack Kirby's birthday is August 28
Comics persisted though--and as the industry matured, so did their visual palette. Storytelling had to be more compelling to keep selling comics. Many creators helped weave a rich history of comics culture. One stood out and still stands the test of time as being the "King of Comics"....Jack Kirby.

Kirby began his career during that Golden Age heyday, and went to become (in all likelihood) the most prolific comic book artist of the Silver Age. He created Captain America for Timely Comics (the early Marvel studio) and went on to create and/or design many of Marvel's most recognizable characters: Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the X-men, the Avengers, and more.

He's beloved by comic book readers above all others because his heroes were real--that is, they suffered in their stories. They carried the burden of outside responsibilities, past sins, and real-world problems. They also lived in vibrant, foreshortened, feverishly colored worlds. Jack's worlds. His work fed the dreams of filmmakers, musicians, and artists of all quarters. His characters became icons.

Can you imagine a world without The Avengers or Captain America?
If comics had a patron saint, Jack Kirby is indefatigably he. He's the hero for an art form once vilified. Today, September 28, would have been his 96th birthday. And so it's easy to see why the creators of Read Comics in Public Day chose his birthday as the day we should all celebrate comics together.

Okay, so what do I do now?
Whether you prefer the Sunday newspaper variety, the superhero sagas found in specialty stores or bookstore racks, long-form graphic novels, or the electronic versions that can be downloaded to e-readers--comics need you. There are stories out there that you need to see, that a movie can't convey. There are characters out there that you need to know, that a TV show on Netflix isn't going to speak to you in the same, intimate fashion. Read something you love. Share it with people.

Let others ask you questions. Let your friends, family, and total strangers know that you're a comic book reader and that you appreciate a great story--and a great story can come from anywhere--even (especially!) from comics.

Perhaps the most important reason to read them in public--so those people know that you--whomever you might be or what your background is--loves comics.

So get out there and read them today, tomorrow, this weekend, and every day as you would any other book--share what you love!

John Lewis' journey for justice begins in "MARCH: Book One"

MARCH: Book One, nonfiction graphic novel by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell  
It's not often that the Library of Justice gets to feature something related to actual "justice". Sure, we've got our share of superheroes and crime and mystery novels--but now we can say we've finally got our hands on something...historic.

New in the Library is MARCH: Book One a graphic novel from Top Shelf Comics by Congressman and Civil Rights leader John Lewis. He's joined by co-author Andrew Aydin and illustrator Nate Powell. Lewis' himself is narrator to a nonfiction retelling of his life: growing up in a poor sharecropping family, early participation in the Civil Rights movement, and first impressions of his role model, Martin Luther King Jr. The story is book-ended by his role in Congress at the time of Barack Obama's first presidential inauguration.

Click to enlarge interior pages

Powell's illustrations are powerful; deftly rendered in crisp black and white. The story is moving, never shying from the ugliness of the past, but also accessible to young readers without being heavy-handed. This is exactly the tone the story needs to be successful. It's dramatic, without skewing into melodrama.

I'm really looking forward to the follow-ups (this is the first of three parts). MARCH is one of a few nonfiction graphic novels we've got in stock and are extremely proud to share. We hope you enjoy it!

Super-excited about our super prizes!

A while aback I entered a random drawing from one of our favorite kids' publishers, Capstone Books. Wouldn't you know it--WE WON! (Or were one of several winners, to be honest, I'm not sure.) They sent us this awesome Superman Family Adventures library edition (hardcover) book and a super-big tote bag. The bag is especially nice, since it comes in handy for carrying large loads of books and comics while we rotate stock in the library.

Captsone makes several great series, but we're partial to the superheroic genres, including the SFA we've blogged about before. If the art style looks familiar, you may have see authors Franco and Art Baltazaar work before on Tiny Titans, based on DC Comics' Teen Titans. These are fantastic books for early readers, with lots of action to hold their attention and about the most colorful graphic style you'll find in any comic book.

One thing I'm particularly excited about is the reverse side with a fantastic illustration of Wonder Woman. WW is tough to find these days--she's usually lumped in with the Justice League--so it was a nice surprise to see her get some prominent face-time!

Relatedly, you'll be hearing more about Wonder Woman in the coming months as we seek to track down some more girl-friendly comic book characters for the neighborhood.

Back to Capstone--they're fantastic and they do a great deal of good to promote literacy of all ages, but especially in getting young readers interested. So thank you Capstone for your fantastic books and for the wonderful prizes!

You'll find Superman Family Adventures in the library now, check it out!

Check out  more of Capstone's DC hero adventures:

Return of the Library of Justice!

The Library of Justice is back! We've refilled it with a few books and comics to get started again. A HUGE thanks to all our neighbors and friends for their support over the last few weeks. Both for donating and for some much needed morale boosting, after our two previous incidents. We're so fortunate to have a concerned and helpful community supporting the library--not to mention all the help we've received from other LFLs and the main Little Free Library organization!

Re-opened with a few new rules...

1. One Book Per Visit, Please
For the time being we're asking folks to take one book or comic at a time. We're hoping to relax that at some point, but for now we'd like to have enough for everyone who'd like a one. 

2. Always a Gift, Never for Sale
This is really for those who either don't know how little free libraries work--or intend to sell any books they borrow--we shouldn't have to say this, but...

Feel free to read, share, and return at your convenience, but please don't take them with the intention of reselling them. The Library of Justice is for the greater benefit of everyone in our community who'd like a book to read. Know that book stores in the area will not purchase a book that's been stamped by a little free library. We have our own particular stamp so folks know from where it came. Area shops have agreed to honor that commitment to keep these books in the LFL community.

We've put a temporary sign to help remind borrowers while we wait for our official one to come from the Little Free Library organization. 

Have a Book to Return?
For those that have a book to bring back to the library, now is a good time to do so, as we restock the library's inventory. :)

Now, if it would just stop raining, we could do a little upkeep....

An (unexpected) update...

We've been closed for all of 48 hours and already things have been busy around here! First, we had a flurry of emails and messages, as well as neighbors stopping by--to talk about what happened the other day. I can't even put into words how amazing the response as been. Several folks have offered to donate more books and help restore trust. I can't go further with out saying a heartfelt "thank you" to you guys.

Then this afternoon, we received a call from Mr. Todd Bol, one of the founders of the Little Free Library organization who's offered to help clarify how the LFL concept works with some "Always a Gift, Never for Sale" signage and book stamps. He was not only generous but intensely motivated to help "get this fixed". He said something that really resonated, that he believed in the "genius of the community". Mr. Bol might have his way of defining that, but to me, it just means that the simple act of sharing serves to bind us together as a community. That's a pretty powerful idea.

Finally, we had some visitors at the Library today. Rather, the couple that had scooped up our books on Tuesday evening returned, and this time, they were putting books into the Library. We'd seen them, but didn't get outside in time to talk to them before they departed. None of the books are the same ones that were removed, but the point being they appeared to try to be making amends. 
We'd put a sign in the Library notifying borrowers that it was closed for the time being, and still they added books to it, which of course makes me feel like we were wrong to close it. But we weren't sure at the time if we'd just be throwing even more books away at that point. So in a day full of heartwarming returns, this one was most welcome. 

At this time, the Library is still closed, but we hope to reopen soon. We're hopeful that that our patrons (sharers and borrowers) will return with us.

Trouble at the Library of Justice

Saturday, May 4th was Free Comic Book Day and we couldn't have had more fun with friends and neighbors celebrating comics. We'd put about two dozen or so graphic novels out in the library for any passerbys, as well as some single issues in the secret shelf. The intent was to keep the celebration going through the weekend. Here's a pic of what was in there:

There's actually about six or seven books (X-men Apocalypse and Avengers Civil War) behind Trinity there, which I'd faced-front. There were a few more single comics under the Superman Family Adventures inserted in the comic shelf.

Holy hunger for literacy Batman!
I'd checked and all the books were still there on Monday morning--I'd even posted on Facebook that day that the books would get a change-over that evening. But we came home to a surprise that night:

Sacked by the Legion of Doom, perhaps? Disenfranchised Wonder Twins??
Nearly all the big graphic novels were gone! At first I was overjoyed that so many books had been borrowed. I imagined droves of new comic readers in our neighborhood, clamoring for comics!

And yet....neither of us could shake this mounting feeling that something didn't sit right. After all, we'd never had that many books vanish all at once before. At most, we see about a handful of books in and out of the library during the week (we're still relatively new in the neighborhood).

Time to restock...
So I'd gone back out Monday night with a fresh load of books to replenish our stock, choosing carefully to get a wide variety of titles and genres. We tend to throw in a few popular ones among those that not everyone may have heard of:

Then, something VERY strange. Emily had stumbled upon some folks we didn't recognize who were literally emptying the library by the armload. They'd pulled up in their car and took everything we had. She'd tried to find out from them if they actually intended reading them all--and that's when she saw our books in their front seat...with an open laptop perched atop the pile. When she inquired if they intended to read the book, they were short on answers. She tried to let them know this was more of a take-a-book/leave-a-book library. Her intention was to let them decide what was right. Their decision was to drive off with all the books in the library.

What's really going on here?
While we're not dummies, we really do try to give people the benefit of the doubt. But at some point you've got to believe what you've seen with your own eyes. We're wondering now, what's the deal with the laptop? It dawned on us that they could be using the Little Free Library Google Map listing to find all the LFLs in the area and just grab tons of books. Are they planning on scalping the books? Who knows. Most of the book stores in area won't take stamped books (ours usually are) but there are lots of other ways to sell them.

Now, there's nothing technically wrong with taking the books--I mean, c'mon that's why the library exists! And while it's not theft--at least in the strict "letter of the law" sense--it's still devastating. To empty the library (and we don't know for sure if it was the same people) TWO days in a row???

Curators, not just caretakers
Not exactly what we'd call the "spirit of community". So now our stock is down nearly 50 some-odd books. A stock that took us months to cultivate. I personally curated the graphic novels, spending a lot of time (and not exactly zero amount of money) to make sure we had titles that people might be interested in--trying to account for not just personal tastes, but the ages, and even the genders of kiddos in the neighborhood.

Again, we totally intended these books to be shared--even en mass since we just had a huge event for that purpose. But a few taking that many books with little (read: no) interest in reading them seems disingenuous. And our response probably shouldn't be to keep filling so that only a few can keep coming back to take everything. It's just really disheartening and a bummer.

Library on hiatus...
We want the library to be something that neighbors can use freely and openly, but also hope that borrowers will be sensible about the quantity they take at one time. More the point--we'd intended the library to be something in which we could share with our neighbors as we get to know them. We're grateful for the friendships and conversation it has already sparked!

It's heartbreaking to say this, but the Library of Justice is taking a break while we get our superhero mojo back and fine-tune things. We'll not be putting new books inside. There's currently a sign posted to indicate it's closed and not to be used. We hope this is temporary and that our friends in the neighborhood understand. Batman has his batcave and Superman his fortress of solitude to plan their comebacks. We hope this means there's a Library of Justice 2.0 in our future.

Thank you for your support everyone. We'll keep you posted.

Free Comic Book Day wrap up!

We had a STUPENDOUS turn out for Free Comic Book Day--more than 40 people showed to come grab some free comics! We also had plenty of games and fun activities to win prizes. Due to some spotty weather, we moved the festivities indoors. Hopefully next year we'll get some sunshine! Here's a photo highlight of all our super-hero patrons (sorry, one or two is a bit blurry):

Some sidewalk chalk to let folks they've come to the right place...

I was pretty proud of my homemade Free Comic Book Day signage....

Picking out free comics!

These amazing and delicious superhero and Star Wars sugar cookies were made by our friends from Two Smart Cookies!

Batman joins the Avengers for a photo op...

One of the activities included a "create your own superhero" lab...

Here's one of the superhero creations--not sure what the best part is here: the hair? the pants? or the fact that this guy is a MIND TWISTER!

And because Free Comic Book Day was also Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You!) We also had a make-your-own lightsaber workshop!

A few rounds of Captain America's Target Toss....

Thanks again for everyone who came out to the Library of Justice on Free Comic Book Day! It was a blast--we hope to see you again next year!

More Game of Thrones!

We've stocked three more paperbacks from George R.R. Martin's Fire and Ice series! We didn't even have to pay the "Iron Price" to get them. Fans of HBO's Game of Thrones will want to check 'em out and see what they've been missing!

Now in stock:
  • Clash of Kings
